up to six hours, just to fill up. i might take a look at what's going on in washington right now. this is the million puppets march. started as a million muppets, but protests of mitt romney's plan to rein in pbs and funding for pbs, are other puppets sympathizing, this kind of tells you what's happening to the country. i'm telling you guys, it's rome, the final days. we've got senate races heating up in the middle of all of this puppetry. pollsters are start to go say the democrats will maintain control, my next guest says not so fast. george allen the republican running for senate in virginia, he barely lost last time by just 1/10 of a point or so. right now the polls have him even with tim kaine and we reached out to tim kaine's office and have not heard back. they keep blowing us off and hopefully we'll hear back, but they just keep blowing us off. and senator, governor, good to have you. what do you think the senate looks like right now, if you had to handicap it? >> well, i think it's very close and all we can do is make sure to win virginia. we have a tight race in virgini
? in a very important election. and you're going to tell me we can't do better than this? washington ought to fix this no matter who wins. maybe they're hoping the democrats just will go home. they don't want to wait in line anymore. joining me tonight, mitch sezer. he's also on the executive board of the democratic committee as a representative of the 14 southern states. i mean, it's great to have you with us tonight. but it just infuriates me when i see video tape like that. i mean, we vote like a third world country. >> well, welcome to ground zero. homeland of rick scott. i will expand the bid and tell you that folks who got online before 7:00, those people had a process by either midnight or 1:00 a.m. this morning. these are people who want their dmok, want the right to vote, and what's standing in their way, as you said, is governor rick scott. >> why is he doing this? why isn't he saying we're going to exhaust every effort we can to make sure there's democracy. i know the answer to it. i want to hear yours. >> it's obvious democrats do well in early voting. statistics prove it. also
and his mandate. let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start with this. the re-elected president did it today, he said what he's going to do, how he's going to lead. he's going do it like a world leader entering into negotiations with preconditions. those preconditions are now clear. a take back of the bush tax cuts from the very top. this is it. what we were waiting for, a tough, sharp statement of what this re-election means. it means that people will know we have a president who is ready to stand his ground for jobs, for growth, but not the bush/romney way, no more trickle down now that the people of this country have sent their message from the gound up. armed for combat, barack obama takes the felt against the very forces who fought to cut him down. he will be a democratic president. he will be fair on tacks. he will use those taxes to rebuild this country and educate it up to the tough competition we face in the 21st century. he's backed by a majority of the american people, indeed re-elects as the only democrat with the civil war with tw
poll data. yesterday we at abc washington post, 50% obama, 47% romney. also had 35% democrat, 29% republicans, 6% more democrats than republicans. that was just one point less. does anyone think the political matrix is going to be depressed returning then -- republican turn out to get that revenge? cnn, ocr, 49-49, really, 11 points more democrat. does anyone think democrat enthusiasm will be more -- almost twice what was last time? the idea that you can look at those numbers and have no sense of the politics and stay with 90% certainty something is going to happen is laughable to me. dagen: i can't wait. >> it will be interesting to watch the returns. dagen: watch my home state of virginia. >> what count your city? judge napolitano: >> excellent. [talking over each other] dagen: i love seeing you. connell: use of video of chris christie in new jersey casting his vote moments ago. only pollsters and pundits we have been talking about, seems to agree, we will talk about it some more. the importance of the ohio. dagen: jeff flock. phil: karl rove has not seen the power of the obama

. in the suburbs of washington. fairfax county and next door in prince william county. in 2008 in the counties president obama did well against mccain. 61% to 389%. in fairfax. prince william, louden, 54-vi. the president will need to do well there. he has to do well there to run up the vote total and make up for romney strength in south and west of virginia. watching virginia very closely when the polls close. >> well done. >> a state that is critical is virginia. i went for president obama in 2008, but romney needs it. mike emanuel live in richmond. good evening. >> election officials describe turn-out as robust and ahead of 2008 levels. experts predicting the record turn-out in the range of 4 million voters. with long lines across virginia that could be achieved. republican vice presidential nominee paul ryan made one final visit to virginia. the richmond area this afternoon. just hours before the polls close at 7:00 p.m. ryan told campaign staff and volunteers this is are a great effort. they should keep it up. wake up tomorrow morning knowing they did evening they could in virginia. for r
the time. the spirit of it is go out to the polls. the "washington post" has a pretty strong assessment of why this is so in some ways despicable on the national stage. the romney campaign thinks so little of the american voter at this point. that we don't need the specifics, that you can get away with these small attacks to obfuscate the larger message which is we don't know what romney is about, he hasn't taken questions from reporters and this is your closing argument? >> they've not only taken out an ad but they have repeated this almost half a dozen times today on the stump. what do you make of it? is this really a focal point now for the romney campaign and their closing argument of the american people? >> i don't think it's so much a focal point but a reemphasis, just sort of making the point as you saw in the rest of the clip there, the contrast, the president wants to talk about your vote being a matter of revenge and i want to talk to you about your vote being about america. so i think they were setting that up. i get the joke. if romney had used that word in the context of so
with washington and what could make it work better. we're back in democracy plaza and some of the stranger ways to predict who will win on tuesday. we'll be right back. ♪ ♪ >>> a now a different way to predict the winner of the presidential race. you may heard of the red skins rule. when they win their last home game prior to a presidential election, that election is won by the party that won the popular vote in the previous election. when they lose the last home game, it is won by the party that lost the popular vote in the previous election. this rule is 18 for 18. it had an addendum to it because the one year it could have been wrong when they lost but president bush won re-election. but the popular vote. in 2008, the phillys won the world series, obama carried pennsylvania and he went on to win the election. in '96 the yankees won, clinton carried new york. tigers won, reagan carried mitch, you get the picture? we could keep going. you get to go all the way back to herbert hoover. the world series champs this year come from california. and one of the newest predictors is in college foot
their bargaining power. if they stick, the state of washington and colorado may become some of our more popular tourist destination as both passed initiatives to legalize recreational marijuana use although it remains to be seen if they face a challenge by the justice department. same-sex marriage, maine, maryland, washington, d.c., allow same sex couples to marry. excuse me, washington. they join the sis states and the district of columbia that have passed such measures. what can these victories teach us about the larger democratic party? for one, it tells us there is a little power in the left ring of the democratic base. while they may not have won everything, small victories can add up to major change. i think it also tells us that we need to be a little careful because, for example, people having the right to marry whomever they want is a fantastic step in the right direction, but i submit having the civil rights of anybody on the ballot is a concern. at the table, we have wade harrison, raoul reyes and nancy giles, writer, social commentator and one of my favorite people. laura, blue grit
is in sterling, a suburban area west of washington, d.c. wyatt, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. we're at the forest grove elementary school precinct here in sterling, virginia. this is a swing precinct, swing county all in the swing state of virginia. why do we say that? because four years ago, this precinct and hundreds like it gave president barack obama 54% of the vote, turned around the very next year and gave republican governor bob mcdonnell 59% of the vote. that means what the voters here behind me decide tonight could be the story of the election. both sides, of course, say it's all about ground game today. the personal contacts, the phone calls, the ride to the polls that will make all the difference. republicans admit they were crushed by the president's ground game four years ago. that won't happen again, they say. both sides are claiming 20 million personal voter contacts, enough to contact every single virginia voter four times. to win tonight, both sides also tell me they need to increase the margins where they are strong. for the romney campaign, that means senior ci
it is up for grabs. we have a lot of confusing information out. abc "washington post" has a 3-point lead for obama but a six more point democrats sampled than republicans. cnn had a tie and an 11-point more democrat. it was a 7-point more democrat than republican in 2008, cnn had it at 11 points and had it at a tie. we have too many polls, the precision they don't have, i'm a numbers guy. i like to see the votes. we know that president obama's margin has declined. if you take a look at the states, the battleground states where there's partisan registration, so you can actually track who is it who is voting early or applying for an absentee ballot. the democrats had a 11-point margin four juror four years ago, it's 5.5 today. 340,000 democrats voted early than republicans four years ago. they this year about 105 more democrats have turned out than republicans, which points to a very, very, very tight night. jon: as you well know these elections are won in the middle, democrats largely vote for their candidates, republicans largely vote for their candidate, and it's the independent voter t
't want him to be re-elected, and you chuckle -- what happens when everyone convenes back in washington? >> i think that would depend on obama. you know, obama, something he has not shown at all yet, obama would have to be willing to actually listen. now whether or not he has the capacity to, john boehner will be the speaker of the house, period, that's done. it's over. so is he going to sit down and listen to boehner or just go through some tracksal bologna meeting? will he talk with conservatives or just lecture them? we have no evidence as of today that barack obama is capable of listening to anybody who doesn't agree with him >> he says the other way around, that the republicans decided that he was going to be a one term president and they would say no to everything he said. >> sure. the question is i said, is he willing to listen. the question is, come in and say, hi, i am going to ram through everything i want and use harry reid to block everything you want. if you listen to him on the stump, anybody who agrees with me, i'll work with. well, he ain't going to get very far with tha
that most of the media is located in new york city and washington and you get a more liberal members of the press corps as a result of where they are ran they live. that's undeniable. i will say that george bush went to war with a very complacent media saying there were weapons of mass destruction. nobody really looked into it too much except for a few left-leaning newspapers. soy wouldn't say the media has done a good job in either case of get together bottom of what voters need them to get to the bottom of. megyn: there is a question of whether we reached a new level where the media loves a president. there have been many segments we have had when we talk about if mitt romney is running against the forth estate in addition to barack obama. >> there is a fundamental head wind against republicans. some of my friends on the right think there is an open conspiracy among the mainstream media to stick it to republicans wherever they can. i agree the mainstream media has given politicians a hard time. they are like werewolves, they prefer to meade on republicans but they must feed on some
